Among Us is a multiplayer game where crewmates attempt to discover the imposter in their midst. Initially, it was available only as an app (on both android and iOS); however, in late 2020 it became available on other gaming systems like Nintendo Switch. The game went through a massive increase in popularity in 2020, two years after its 2018 release, at least partially due to Let's Play videos by Twitch streamers and YouTubers.
The Among Us fandom is broad, with segments devoted to fanfiction, fanart (particularly crossovers), Let's Play videos on different platforms, many memes, fanvids made with recorded gameplay, and animated videos (usually Multi Animator Projects).
